Eleven years ago I fell in love with, and married a Miracle Whip eating, non-pumpkin loving man. (Love will make you do crazy things.) Luckily, our daughter LOVES pumpkin. We are naturally girls of autumn. Fall is our favorite! My husband and I were married in the fall, O was born in the fall, we love all things Halloween, crisp air, colorful leaves, camping, bonfires, roasting marshmallows, smores, sweatshirts, jeans and boots….it’s just the best time of year. Most importantly, EVERYTHING pumpkin returns for a few weeks! Here is our take on our absolute favorite pie. PUMPKIN!!!!
